Online Well-being Assessment

The PSB is publishing its online Well-being Assessment for the first time. This includes many of the datasets that were included in the original Well-being Assessment, but where appropriate the data included has been updated to include the latest available information. Narratives describing data trends are also provided where appropriate. This can be accessed here:

A Welsh version of the resource is currently being developed and will be made available in due course.


Caerphilly Public Services Board is required to prepare a local assessment of well-being for the area that looks at it’s economic, environmental, cultural and social situation. The Well-being Assessment will be used to inform planning across the public sector to deliver ‘The Caerphilly We Want’ and meet the national well-being goals for Wales.

In order to write the Plan, the PSB must undertake an assessment of well-being in community areas and the county as a whole.  The assessment must include relevant data and draw on the expertise of local people and organisations.  The assessment is expected to look at strengths and assets of people and communities which can be built on to help improve the well-being of those communities.

Well-being assessment

The Assessment will be used to set local Well-being Objectives and the Well-being Plan for the area. The assessment has been developed by consulting extensively with our communities to gather their views on the well-being of the area, now and in the future.

This engagement is supported by the relevant data for the county borough to paint a rich picture of life in the area. It highlights a number of emerging trends that will be the focus of objective setting and planning across public services.

The subsequent Well-being Plan will be developed over the period leading up to May 2018.
